The Review:
My family really enjoyed this, I was trying to copycat Johnny Carinos Italian Pot Roast. This is not the same but good. I wasn't as pleased as I was hoping. This dish has a sweetness to it and I'm not big on beef being sweet. I'm more of a savory girl when it comes to beef. Chicken, Pork, even Fish can be sweet but not Beef. So that might have been a personal issue. I would not let that keep you from trying this though b/c it introduces such healthy flavorful goodness to your children's palette. I put it over spaghetti and added mozzeralla to the top. My kids thought they were getting spaghetti and they loved it. If you try this dish and enjoy it please comment and let me know. I would also appreciate a follow or a subscription! God blessings to all.
